Question about HP Photosmart 2710 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Photosmart 2710 is not recognized over wireless connection

I had the HP Photsmart 2710 connected via USB to my desktop. I also had a network setup whereby my laptop which was wirelessly connected to the network print to the 2710 since it was a shared device. My desktop died, and I removed the usb connection off the 2710 and connected it to my wireless router. From the laptop I can ping it. it has an IP address, but when I try to added it as a printer via my laptop the list of printers Windows XP has listed the 2710 is not among them. I no longer have the the CD that came with the printer and though I've downloaded the latest software for the 2710 from HP its an executable file that installs the HP Director. When I indicate that I have software for the device (2710) and specify the folder for the HP director, Windows XP SP-2 doesnt recognize it. I went through a number of HP printers that appear in the windows list and have found the HP Office JET LX to at least print black and white prints. So I have connection files get printed but not as though it is a HP 2710 printer. Can you please assist me?

HP photosmart C5580 wireless printing problem


You laptop will not be able to connect to the printer using the bluetooth technology. But the good news is that you can use the printer thru your home network by having the desktop that the printer is connected to be part of the same home network that your laptop is part of and then share your printer on our desktop and then select it as a printer to use on your laptop.
This link has instructions for all of your home network instructions.

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook


You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Download latest driver bundle (198mb) and the network reliabilty patch. Install the HP software choosing Connected via USB. Install the network reliability patch from the C7280 downloads page. Re-run the 198mb installer and choose Add a Device.

Presto! Wireless setup completes correctly.

HP Photosmart C7280 wireless connection


My experience is different. My DSL router died in the night and I had to install the old one. I just changed the wireless settings on my C7280, and now all three connections work. If no wire (ethernet or USB) is connected, the wireless connection works. If the Ethernet cable is connected, it works via Ethernet, and if the USB cable is connected, it works via USB. It seems to default in that order.

Hp2710 all in one


I would like to inform you that we need to install the printer software for the first time and should try to share the printer in network with the help of USB connected to the All-in-One. I would also like to mention you that the printer you are using is not supported in network.
